Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is accused of pretending to be arrested Tuesday while protesting for abortion outside the Supreme Court.
Wearing a pro-abortion green bandana around her neck, the Squad member, while being escorted by law enforcement, held her hands behind her back for cameras.
At one point, she lifted a fist in the air showing that her hands were not cuffed or even tied together.

“It is against the law to block traffic, so officers are going to give our standard three warnings before they start making arrests,” Capitol Police tweeted.
Capitol Police later tweeted that they arrested 34 people in total, including 16 members of Congress.
